Just Passing Time

Ben has been gone eight days. Ten more days to go. Fortunately, I'm easily entertained and so time passes slowly, which is better than feeling like it is standing completely still and oh my goodness how am I going to survive!  I do activities like putting colorful bracelets on my wrists and then admire how the light catches them. Ahhh, the simple things!

Levi also keeps me on my toes. Why do toddlers find danger so attractive?  Our days are filled with minor mishaps ("I can't believe that floor just tripped you!") and play dates. On some evenings my can't-live-without-'em girlfriends have come over to relieve me so that I can exercise and just breathe. 
I eagerly anticipate Ben's return but in the mean time I'm challenging myself to grow. I'm learning to thank God for the blessings he has given me through wonderful friends, family and a sweet little boy.  

oh my goodness how am i going to survive
thank God
